For some reason, it looks like your pgplot library doesn't have
the 'cpggray' subroutine.  That's why you're seeing the message
"undefined symbol: cpggray".

It's strange that this symbol is missing.

I recommend using the cfitsio and pgplot libraries included in
the HEADAS distribution.  To do that, configure isis like so:

  ./configure --with-slang=DIR --with-headas=$HEADAS

Is cpggray missing from the HEADAS version of pgplot?

In case that's the problem, I removed the reference to cpggray
from pgplot-module.c.  That modified version of the module
available in:
and can be used to replace:

To build a new version of the pgplot module after replacing
that file, do:

  cd isis-$version/modules/pgplot/src
  make clean all install

I hope there are no more missing symbols.
